debate and what could be mitt romney's best chance to change the trajectory of the race. president obama is holed up in vegas for two days preparing. mitt romney will be in colorado tonight. the latest poll shows president obama and mitt romney locked in a tight race nationally. but where it counts, those battle ground states, the president still leads. and here's another interesting poll. most people think the president will win the first debate which may be why he's trying to lower expectations. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the the zingers. governor romney is good. i'm just okay. >> and paul ryan played his own version. >> president obama is a gifted speaker. he's been on the national stage for many years. he's done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> but if all candidates are trying to lower expectations, maybe chris christie missed that memo. >> governor romney's going to lay out his vision for a better and greater america for greater opportunity for all of our citizens. and i think that's
this race really start to tighten and then move in governor romney's direction. come thursday morning the narrative of this race is going to change. >> romney has been preparing with senator rob portman who filled in as obama during john mccain's 2008 prep. the president practicing with jor kerry playing the role of romney. kerry is a good fit since the parallels between his '04 and current one is overwhelming. can romney get the post-debate bounce kerry did in '04 and take it one step further and turn it into something kerry couldn't do eight years ago. in '04 president bush had a six-point lead before the debates but kerry's performance boosted him tying the men for the final debate but it was senator kerry in december '04 and not president elect kerry. the national polls are close her today than eight years ago but the numbers in key battlegrounds today tell an obama victory story. democratic strategist steve el mendorf, kerry's deputy campaign manager in '04. how are you? >> good, how are you. >> tell me about why your guy won the debates and lost the election and what that says p
-new race. >> reporter: christie is way off the romney campaign script. they're trying to lower expectations. >> look, president obama is a very -- he's a very gifted speaker. the man has been on the national stage for many years. this is mitt's first time on this kind of stage. >> reporter: paul ryan, the vice presidential nominee preparing for his own debate avoided giving details much the tax plan even when pressed. >> haven't given me the math. >> i don't have the -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> reporter: the president is in nevada at any time for what insiders call three days of debate camp at a resort outside of las vegas. they too are trying to lower expectations and believe the count that the romney campaign is convinced debates are about moments. >> the idea that i'm anti-immigrant is repulsive. >> reporter: and romney will come armed with several one-liners. >> they've been 3r5ing zingers and lines for months. i'm sure a bunch of clever lines but that's not what the american people are looking for. >> reporter: the president is being coached to be cri
's a margin of error race. in other words, that'd code for romney's behind and that's why they're making comments like this one. >> the question was if we lose ohio, could we still win. say if and buts were candy and nuts, every day would be christmas. >> make no mistakes. ohio, big problem for romney. >>> speaking of the two candidates, while they're both in ohio today, yesterday obama and romney rivalled the muppets and tried to take manhattan. they jammed as much as they could during competing visits to the big apple, a whirlwind day of media appearances. it was hard to miss them either physically in new york or on the tv. >> i'm just supposed to be eye candy here for you guys. >> the two traded few actual barbs. instead they did more subtle contrasts on the serious issues like the middle east and education and even less serious topics like who could best suck up to the former president, bill clinton. their sharpest and most substantive change was on iran. united nations, the president appeared to draw a real line in the sand on iran's efforts to build a nuclear weapon. >> so let me b
happen it to mitt romney to republican race as cross the country. "the daily beast" says the gop is suffering from self-dell lugs syndrome. joining me are three quarters of nbc's newest show "the cycle," krystal ball, toure, and s.e. cupp. >> steve is here as the holy ghost, right? >> anyway, okay. so krystal ball, i want to start with the latest comments from todd akin. they kay claire miss cass kill unlady-like. >> unbelievable. >> among them newt gingrich, rick santorum, jim demight not, high profile. do you agree that this could have a national trickle-down effect here? >> i think it has a trickle-down effect and it has a trickle-up effect as well. look at mitt romney's polls in ohio he's trailing among women by 25 points. so the overall impression of the republican party as not getting women, as being very unfriendly towards women, as not scientifically understanding women has had a negative impact on the gop. it's unbelievable that in the very week when he finally -- when the deadline passed that he could no longer get out of the race he comes back out with something else t
the race for romney. it's hard to imagine -- it's hard to imagine obama going in there and doing a terrible job. it's possible. sort of equally impossible to imagine romney doing such an outstanding job, so different than we've ever expected that would also make a difference and yet, that's what he really has to go for. >> you say that except in 2004, i keep talking about 2004 today, you know, george bush had about a six-point lead nationally going into the first debate. john kerry did not do anything magical in that first debate but managed to perform better than people expected him to and better than george w. bush. he picked up about four points nationally after the first debate. it's not unconceivable mitt romney could do that. the key with debates does president obama perform poorly or mitt romney well. the key with all debates what's the moment. is there a big moment that crashes through and changes people's perceptions about the dynamic in a big way. governor romney will not only have to perform well in general because president obama's likely to perform well in general but he has to
this as an inyou in this race. -- as an issue in this race. according to politico governor romney now hold a 9-point advantage over president obama with middle class families. 53-44%. joining me to discuss it leslie marshall and lars larson. we were told by the mainstream media, lars, that governor romney was having major campaign issues and they were rooted to the middle class so how do you explain this poll? >> i think it's easy to explain. i can't wait for leslie to explain why middle class voters should like a guy -- watching middle class incomes -- megyn family incomes -- not the incomes of doctor's wives like leslie. but family incomes have gone down $5,000 under this guy. obama-care was supposed to bring premiums down by $2,500 but instead they have gone up $2,500. obama-care has 20 different taxes in it. why would any middle class family be happy about a president who took away flexible spending accounts? what is there to love if romney offers an alternative to what obama has done to them? megyn: when you look at the polling they dug deep and asked what is it that's upsetting you. 45%
this back to politics. >> i love it. >> we're in the middle of a presidential race. you look at romney, look at obama. do you see one who is using vulnerability better to make an impression on voters? >> what i -- you know what i see? i like to follow reaction to things like the conventions, to press conferences. what i see is that, you know, slick and shiny and overpromising does not play well anymore for us. i think we want people who stand -- i think we want to see ourselves reflected in our leaders. we want to see people who say, man, this is hard. there's no easy answers. i wish i could bs you into believing there were, but there are not. here is how i want to move forward, this is what i think is important. i think we're ready for some really deep authenticity, some realness, and we want to see leaders whose lives and struggles are reflected, you know. we want to see ourselves reflected in their stories and experiences. i think we're done. i think -- i really think, you know, ironically i started my research six months before 9/11, and so it's been a really powerful thing to watch kind
a tight race. romney's campaign should have refocused their efforts, but instead, they find themselveses in a huge disadvantage, as the first ballots were cast today. president obama is moving in for the final knockout punch. the obama campaign unveiled a full two-minute television video ad today with president directly addressing viewers. the ad is airing in four swing states, including iowa. it has the look and feel of a candidate's closing argument. >> it's time for a new economic patriotism. rooted in the belief that growing our economy against with a strong, thriving middle class. read my plan. compare it to governor romney's and decide for yourself. thanks for listening. >> the president introduced the theme of economic patriotism into his stump speech at a campaign event in virginia today. >> during campaign season, you always hear a lot about patriotism. well, you know what? it's time for a new economic patriotism. an economic patriotism rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middle class. >> this is a new line in the president's campaign
for mitt romney. he needs to bring this race back to a referendum on obama. it was a referendum on president obama for awhile as any re-election should be, then it was a choice. now it's actually a referendum on mitt romney. he needs to shift the referendum back into the incumbent and have the debate questioners really hold the president to account for some answers in libya, his silence on syria and certainly the economy. >> jennifer, it's going to be a fascinating night, the debate. i can't wait to watch it. there is a point there, barack obama hasn't done a debate now for quite a long time. mitt romney spent most of the year debating and he got better and better. i thought actually he was a very good debater. one of the reasons he won the nomination was his ability to swat away all comers. so i would think this could be a bit of a surprise coming next week, where mitt romney maybe ought to refocus his whole campaign, get momentum and really get after barack obama at a time when barack obama least wants him to. >> i totally agree with you, piers. this is the moment for mitt rom
isn't about winning. polls show romney in a close race with the president, but trailing badly in some of the swing states that will decide the presidential election. well, here is mitt romney, we have heard these words before, sounds as though he's downplaying expectations as they say. take a listen. >> people want to know who is going to win, who is going to score the punches and who is going to make the biggest difference in the arguments they make and there is going to be all the scoring of winning and losing. >> so romney is saying, no, it is not about winning, not about losing, it is about america. but you have a lot of republicans, newt gingrich, for example, saying, hey, mitt romney, get out there, pick a fight, and win it. jim acosta with me now from the romney campaign. the debate, of course, tomorrow night in denver, you, sir, are in littleton, colorado. should we take mitt romney at face value when he says this debate is not about me winning? >> reporter: well, brooke, i think this is all part of the debate expectations game that has been going on for several days now. i th
." race against time. mitt romney gets the word ease in a slide in battleground states. what does he do today to turn it around and why is he showing up with bill clinton? >>> game over. was this the worst call ever? >> two of the worst calls at the end of a football game i can remember. >> players, fans up in arms. who are these replacement referees. find out what we learned today. >>> real money. are you losing tens of thousand of dollars. is the bank telling you what your home is really worth? how to get that money back. >>> and, look, no hands? has the jettison's car finally arrived? an announcement today, we'll soon be sharing the road with cars that drive themselves. >> go ahead much. >>> good evening. tonight we begin with the clock ticking and a candidate looking for a big move. 42 days to go until "your voice, your vote." and governor mitt romney shows him in a slide in two absolutely battleground states, ohio and florida. what is happening and how will he turn it around. david muir is with the the romney campaign tonight in ohio. david. >> reporter: diane, good evening to you.
about the new poll, polling information showing romney is trailing in the race nationwide. tell us more. >> we're getting new polls every day at this point in the race, which is fun for us. a new fox news poll has obama up by 48 to 43 margin over mitt romney. that's in keeping with other polls we have seen recently both nationally and in swing states, you know this poll looks like a lot of others. obama has advantages over romney on the economy and a range of issues. one thing that stood out in the poll is that a lot of voters didn't like how obama's handling the situation in libya. and the romney campaign sort of sees that as well which is why you see them hitting obama so hard on this lately. but there is still a problem here for romney. this is why the debates are so important. romney wants to change the fundamental structure of this race with this debate coming up next wednesday. remember, over 50 million people watched the first presidential debate in 2008. this is going to be a big moment coming up next week, fred, for mitt romney. >> well, let's shift to the u.s. senate and how p
to the race. it's much closer. when it comes to the race. shows the mitt romney at 49 losing to obama with 47. much closer in that regard. >> so the first one wednesday. then we have two more coming up. biggest one no doubt. >> 36 days to go. >> 36 days to go. my goodness. >> not that we are counting. >>> as the the war in afghanistan winds down, the u.s. military reached a grim new milestone. 2,000 service members have now died in the war. the latest casualty, it was over the weekend when a soldier died in a fire fight with afghan troops. an american civilian contractor was also killed in that battle. >>> all right, new findings this morning in the government's botched gun tracking program, fast and furious, with dozens more firearms linked to crimes in mexico. our new partner univision, reports 57 undiscovered guns, connected to fast and furious, recovered at the sites of murde least two massacres. >>> a detroit area woman who collected welfare despite winning $1 million lottery, found drug of possible drug overdose. amanda clayton was on probation for fraud paid back $5,500 to the state of
at the top of the ticket, right? at a certain point, though, if it stays like this in the presidential race, now's the time to start asking, these outside groups who have be en hed mon ar trent race, behalf of mitt romney, look at those poll numbers and say, why are we spending all this money? why are we sending good money after bad? is the race going to be written off by republican donors? the democrats are not only saying now that they are going to hold on to the senate, the democrats are now starting to talk about taking back the house, which in all likelihood would make nancy pelosi speaker of the house again. nancy pelosi is our guest, next.

their minds than we think. the democratic convention moved the needle in this race because bill clinton went out for 45 minutes and made a case on substance largely against mitt romney and he made it. and romney's 47% remark moved the needle. there is a narrow lead for president obama. so romney needs to make the case affirmatively for his program and why it's better than the president's. this is not just a referendum. this was the romney theory going in. he needs to prove that he's a better choice for the next four years. >> people are still persuadable. 15% is a pretty big number. if you look at undecided voters in most polls it's around 6%. but rich is right. people will pay attention to this and they will look for something maybe to make them change their minds for people who aren't completely thrilled about their choice which actually i think in both parties it's most people. most people aren't that excited about their choice. but it's mostly the independent voters they will have to focus on. bill: you make the case this debate is really for them. the persuadables. >> it's not just for
